West Point Caucus Thursday Jan 9

On Thursday, at 7:00 pm, the Town of West Point will decide who gets to run for two open seats on the Board of Supervisors. Because West Point uses the caucus system, anyone from the town who meets the basic qualifications can show up and declare their intent to run.

In municipalities that use a primary system, people who want to run for office must register and collect enough votes to qualify as a candidate. In a caucus, whoever shows up at the meeting gets to decide, then and there, who will be on the ballot in April.  If only a dozen people attend, those dozen make the choice for everyone.
